Raised By Christ

And behold, again it hath been spoken,
that there is a first resurrection,
a resurrection of all those who have been,
or who are, or who shall be,
down to the resurrection of Christ from the dead.

Now, we do not suppose that this first resurrection,
which is spoken of in this manner,
can be the resurrection of the souls
and their consignation to happiness or misery.

Ye cannot suppose that this is what it meaneth.

Behold, I say unto you, Nay; but it meaneth
the reuniting of the soul with the body,
of those from the days of Adam
down to the resurrection of Christ.

Now, whether the souls and the bodies
of those of whom has been spoken
shall all be reunited at once,
the wicked as well as the righteous,
I do not say; let it suffice, that I say
that they all come forth; or in other words,
their resurrection cometh to pass
before the resurrection of those
who die after the resurrection of Christ.

Now I do not say that their resurrection
cometh at the resurrection of Christ;
but behold, I give it as my opinion,
that the souls and the bodies are reunited,
of the righteous, at the resurrection of Christ,
and his ascension into heaven.
(Alma 40:16-20)

Our Hope Is In Jesus

This mortal does not put on immortality,
this corruption does not put on incorruption—
until after the coming of Christ.

Behold, he bringeth to pass
the resurrection of the dead.
(Alma 40:2-3)

The Gift Of Jesus Christ

And I would exhort you
that ye remember that
every good gift cometh of Christ.

And again I would exhort you
that ye would come unto Christ,
and lay hold upon every good gift.
(Moroni 10:18 & 30)

Thanks Be To God

O how you ought to
thank your heavenly King!
(Mosiah 2:19)

Glad Tidings In Christ

I would say somewhat unto you
concerning the coming of Christ.

Behold, I say unto you,
that it is he that surely shall come
to take away the sins of the world;
yea, he cometh to declare glad tidings
of salvation unto his people.
(Alma 39:15)

Jesus Is The Way

There is no other way or means
whereby man can be saved,
only in and through Christ.

Behold, he is the life and
the light of the world.

Behold, he is the word
of truth and righteousness.
(Alma 38:9)

Peace Through Christ

And it came to pass that
I was three days and three nights
in the most bitter pain and anguish of soul;
and never, until I did cry out
unto the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy,
did I receive a remission of my sins.

But behold, I did cry unto him
and I did find peace to my soul.
(Alma 38:8)

Come Follow Jesus

Surely shall the words of Christ,
if we follow their course,
carry us beyond this vale of sorrow
into a far better land of promise.
(Alma 37:45)

Hearken Unto Christ

Behold, it is easy to give heed
to the word of Christ,
which will point to you
a straight course to eternal bliss.
(Alma 37:44)

Teach And Preach Jesus Christ

Preach unto them repentance,
and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ;
teach them to humble themselves
and to be meek and lowly in heart;
teach them to withstand
every temptation of the devil,
with their faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Alma 37:33)

These Things Testify Of Christ

Yea, I say unto you, these things
that these records do contain; yea,
these records and their words
brought them unto repentance;
that is, they brought them to
the knowledge of the Lord their God,
and to rejoice in Jesus Christ their Redeemer.
(Alma 37:9)

Born Again Through Jesus Christ

And it came to pass that
as I was thus racked with torment,
while I was harrowed up
by the memory of my many sins,
behold, I remembered also to have heard
my father prophesy unto the people concerning
the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God,
to atone for the sins of the world.

Now, as my mind caught hold upon this thought,
I cried within my heart: O Jesus, thou Son of God,
have mercy on me, who am in the gall of bitterness,
and am encircled about by the everlasting chains of death.

And now, behold, when I thought this,
I could remember my pains no more; yea,
I was harrowed up by the memory of my sins no more.

And oh, what joy, and what marvelous light I did behold;
yea, my soul was filled with joy as exceeding as was my pain!

Yea, I say unto you that there could be nothing
so exquisite and so bitter as were my pains.

Yea, and again I say unto you that on the other hand,
there can be nothing so exquisite and sweet as was my joy.

But behold, my limbs did receive their strength again,
and I stood upon my feet, and did manifest
unto the people that I had been born of God.
(Alma 36:17-21 & 23)

Through The Mercies Of Christ

And now I desire that ye should
remember these things, and that ye should
work out your salvation with fear before God,
and that ye should no more deny
the coming of Christ;

That ye contend no more against
the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it,
and take upon you the name of Christ;
that ye humble yourselves even to the dust,
and worship God, in whatsoever place
ye may be in, in spirit and in truth;
and that ye live in thanksgiving daily,
for the many mercies and blessings
which he doth bestow upon you.
(Alma 34:37-38)

Only Through Christ

The Lord hath said that
the righteous shall
sit down in his kingdom,
to go no more out;
but their garments
should be made white
through the blood of the Lamb.
(Alma 34:36)

Jesus Christ - Our All In All

Therefore, it is expedient that
there should be a great and last sacrifice,
and then shall there be,
or it is expedient there should be,
a stop to the shedding of blood;
then shall the law of Moses be fulfilled;
yea, it shall be all fulfilled, every jot and tittle,
and none shall have passed away.

And behold, this is the whole meaning of the law,
every whit pointing to that great and last sacrifice;
and that great and last sacrifice will be
the Son of God, yea, infinite and eternal.

And thus he shall bring salvation
to all those who shall believe on his name;
this being the intent of this last sacrifice,
to bring about the bowels of mercy,
which overpowereth justice, and bringeth
about means unto men that
they may have faith unto repentance.
(Alma 34:13-15)

Jesus Is The Christ

And now, behold,
I will testify unto you of myself
that these things are true.

Behold, I say unto you, that
I do know that Christ shall
come among the children of men,
to take upon him
the transgressions of his people,
and that he shall atone
for the sins of the world;
for the Lord God hath spoken it.
(Alma 34:8)

Jesus Christ Is Our Redeemer

And we have beheld that
the great question which is in your minds
is whether the word be in the Son of God,
or whether there shall be no Christ.

And ye also beheld that my brother
has proved unto you, in many instances,
that the word is in Christ unto salvation,
that redemption cometh through the Son of God.
(Alma 34:5-7)

Jesus Is The Son Of God

I think that it is impossible
that ye should be ignorant
of the things which have been spoken
concerning the coming of Christ,
who is taught by us to be the Son of God.
(Alma 34:2)

Joy In Christ Grows Within

And now I desire that ye shall
plant this word in your hearts,
and as it beginneth to swell
even so nourish it by your faith.

And behold, it will become a tree,
springing up in you unto everlasting life.

And then may God grant unto you that
your burdens may be light,
through the joy of his Son.

And even all this can ye do if ye will.
(Alma 33:23)

Look Unto Jesus Christ

Then cast about your eyes and
begin to believe in the Son of God,
that he will come to redeem his people,
and that he shall suffer and
die to atone for their sins;
and that he shall rise again from the dead,
which shall bring to pass the resurrection,
that all men shall stand before him,
to be judged at the last and judgment day,
according to their works.
(Alma 33:22)

Look Unto Jesus Christ

And now ye see that a second prophet of old
has testified of the Son of God.

But behold, this is not all;
these are not the only ones who have
spoken concerning the Son of God.

Behold, he was spoken of by Moses;
yea, and behold a type was raised
up in the wilderness,
that whosoever would look upon it might live.

And many did look and live.

Merciful Jesus

Thou art angry, O Lord,
with this people,
because they will not
understand thy mercies
which thou hast
bestowed upon them
because of thy Son.
(Alma 33:16)
